STATEMENT FROM CON EDISON
NEW YORK – Con Edison crews are working around the clock to
restore customers who lost power during the heat wave and last night's
violent storms. We understand the frustrations of people who are
experiencing power outages and appreciate their patience.
Hundreds of Con Edison crews have been working in
very tough conditions to stabilize the electrical system in Northwest
Queens. We want to thank our residential and commercial customers
for their response to our appeals for conservation. We have also
reached out to the business community to help further reduce power
use in the area.
In addition, we have crews working in Westchester
County, where 25,000 customers lost power during last night's storms.
Again, we thank our customers and appreciate their assistance.
